I need help finding places to donate cash that will provide cash for displaced workers, parents with increased costs, etc. due to covid-19 shut downs. If anyone knows of a good place to direct funds, please let me know?
I'm in the fortunate position of being able to work from home for a company that is a little insulated from the effects of COVID-19, and I want to spread that to people who are affected.
I'll also update here if i find something useful.

I will never actually implement it but sometimes I look at what the popularity of Twitter has done to the shapes of our conversations and I want to mandate a *minimum* post length here.
Mastodon's default limit of 500 is a start but not really enough. Every instance that raises the limit into the thousands of characters or beyond is doing a great thing by providing a way to wean people off of short, staccato exchanges and give them the opportunity for thought and nuance in a text box they have been trained to dump thoughts into. It looks short at first but it just keeps on growing and growing as your thought takes shape, and you can actually go back and *edit* the fucking thing.
But really I still miss when goddamn Livejournal was where all my online social shit happened. People could still be dicks on it, don't get me wrong! it wasn't set up to encourage and enforce hot takes, though; it wasn't built to make a ton of money by farming your outrage and stress and turning it into ad views!
(Which is really a problem with ALL modern social sites, everyone wants to become the next Zuckerfuck and there is no way to do that without strip-mining your users' attention. But I've sung that song more than once and don't care to sing it again today; I've got shit to do.)
(This post brought to you by watching a disagreement actually get *resolved* thanks to the power of replies that are long enough to have some fucking nuance, instead of blowing up into a multi-day shitstorm of too-short replies going back and forth.)
The CDC has ordered a nationwide eviction moratorium that runs through the end of the year. The goal is to prevent the spread of COVID19.
The order, information on how to halt an eviction, and the limitations of the order, are in the PDF stored here: https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2020/09/04/2020-19654/temporary-halt-in-residential-evictions-to-prevent-the-further-spread-of-covid-19

anyone in the #portland area looking for a roommate? I can pay $400 in rent
i need to move out of a very abusive housing situation before being evicted from not vacuuming and mopping everyday (yes this is serious)
boosts are appreciated!
A lot of rambling about abusive tech and people who code it
Aside from Jamendo, does anyone have recommendations for where to find copyleft music for use in a charity project? Attribution is no problem, but has to be licensed for reuse.
Specifically looking for a techno dance remix of Mendelssohn’s Midsummer wedding march, but a place to search would be great!
Fate/Grand Order, stupid media, trans stuff
My headcanon seems *really frigging valid*
smh type/moon needs to take their heads out of their asses and just say outright that Mordred's a trans man, Astolfo's enby-femme, etc.
The text here says:
- Don't treat Mordred as a woman.
- Don't be obvious about treating Mordred as a man.
I read this as:
Tread Mordred like you would any other man. Don't make a show of it, just do it.
I feel like *other readings* of this are a stretch...

A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
